All delegation members highly recognized the academic management, IB Curriculum and school environment of BIS. Dr. Eva Neher gave a short presentation on the concept and vision of XLab. A common intention has been reached by both sides after friendly discussion that XLab China will be settled in Boston International School. A MOU has been signed right after. XLab will invite Nobel Laureates, scientists and academicians to Wuxi, China and have face to face interactions with BIS students and teachers. Students will have a deeper understanding of science, obtain higher scores through different kinds of teaching methods such as science festivals. Therefore, students have more opportunities to get into the top universities.
